Dear Owners,

We are pleased to have returned to double digit revenue growth while delivering our 10th profitable quarter in a row. In addition, our increases in technology spending have supported an innovation cycle that has spun up to the point that we can conceive and execute on ideas much faster than at any previous time in our existence. A good example of this is the credit facility that we started offering customers this week, on competitive, and in some cases, significantly stronger terms than Amazon offers on its store card. Other examples from 2014 include Bitcoin, Pet Adoptions, Insurance, and Supplier Oasis Fulfillment Services (which is an alternative to Amazon Fulfillment Services at a fraction of the price). Barring exogenous events, I anticipate that our innovative efforts will continue gathering momentum.

In addition, the 1st Appellate District of the California Court of Appeals has set an August 15, 2014 date in San Francisco to hear oral arguments regarding our lawsuit against Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch, as well as the motion to unseal the evidence that has been jointly filed by The Economist, Rolling Stone, Bloomberg, and The New York Times. I believe things are going to get exciting.

As previously announced, the company will hold a conference call and webcast to discuss its Q2 2014 financial results Thursday, July 24, 2014, at 11:30 a.m. ET. I look forward to talking with you then.

Your humble servant,

Patrick M. Byrne

P.S.  On June 5 of this quarter several CNBC personalities issued an on-air invitation/challenge to me to appear on CNBC. I publicly accepted that invitation that very day (see my DeepCapture blog, "My Response to Becky Quick's Proposal: I Do," June 5, 2014). Since then, CNBC has refused to respond to emails or phone calls. I mention this only because shareholders have asked me why I did not call their raise. The answer is, I did, and they were bluffing.

Key financial and operating metrics:

Investors should review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.

Total net revenue - Total net revenue for Q2 2014 and 2013 was $332.5 million and $293.2 million, respectively, a 13% increase. The growth in revenue was primarily due to a 9% increase in orders, coupled with a 6% increase in average order size, from $167 to $177. These increases were partially offset by increased promotional activities (including coupons, site sales, and Club O Rewards), which are recognized as a reduction of revenue. Although our average order size has increased in recent years, we expect the rate of increase to taper in 2014.

Gross profit - Gross profit for Q2 2014 and 2013 was $62.6 million and $57.8 million, respectively, an 8% increase, representing 18.8% and 19.7% gross margin for those respective periods. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher revenue. The decrease in gross margin was largely due to increased promotional activities (including coupons, site sales, and Club O Rewards), which are recognized as a reduction of revenue.

Sales and marketing expenses - Sales and marketing expenses totaled $23.5 million and $19.2 million for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively, a 23% increase, and representing 7.1% and 6.6% of total net revenue for those periods. The increase was primarily due to increased spending in the sponsored search, display ad, and email marketing channels due to driving a higher proportion of our revenue through those channels.

Contribution (a non-GAAP financial measure) and contribution margin (a non-GAAP financial measure) - Contribution for Q2 2014 and 2013 was $39.1 million and $38.6 million, respectively, a 1% increase, representing 11.8% and 13.2% contribution margin for those respective periods.

Contribution (a non-GAAP financial measure - which we reconcile to "gross profit" in our statement of income) consists of gross profit less sales and marketing expense and reflects an additional way of viewing our results. Contribution margin is contribution as a percentage of total net revenue. We believe contribution and contribution margin provides management and users of the financial statements information about our ability to cover our operating costs, such as technology and general and administrative expenses. Contribution and contribution margin are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. The material limitation associated with the use of contribution is that it is an incomplete measure of profitability as it does not include all operating expenses or non-operating income and expenses. Management compensates for these limitations when using this measure by looking at other GAAP measures, such as operating income and net income.

Our calculation of contribution and contribution margin is set forth below (in thousands):

Technology expenses - Technology expenses totaled $21.4 million and $17.9 million for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively, a 19% increase, and representing 6.4% and 6.1% of total net revenue for those respective periods. The increase is primarily due to an increase in staff-related costs and depreciation.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses - G&A expenses totaled $15.9 million and $16.6 million for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively, a 4% decrease, and representing 4.8% and 5.7% of total revenue for those respective periods. The decrease is primarily due to a $1.8 million decrease in legal costs, partially offset by an increase in staff-related costs, travel costs, and professional fees.

Restructuring - Restructuring costs totaled zero and ($39,000) for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively. The credit in Q2 2013 was related to our exercising an early termination option in one of our office space leases.

Interest income - Interest income was $37,000 and $32,000 for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Interest expense - Interest expense totaled $12,000 and $37,000 for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Other income (expense), net - Other income (expense), net totaled $524,000 and ($150,000) for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively. The increase is primarily due to a decrease in losses on precious metals (there were no losses in the current quarter), and increases in Club O Rewards and gift card breakage.

Provision for income taxes - Provision for income taxes totaled $433,000 and $312,000 for Q2 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) - Free cash flow totaled $27.0 million and $46.3 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The $19.4 million decrease was due to a $10.8 million decrease in operating cash flows and an $8.6 million increase in capital expenditures.

Free cash flow reflects an additional way of viewing our cash flows and liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows and liquidity. Free cash flow, which we reconcile to "net cash provided by (used in) operating activities," is cash flow from operations reduced by "expenditures for fixed assets, including internal-use software and website development." We believe that cash flows from operating activities is an important measure, since it includes both the cash impact of the continuing operations of the business and changes in the balance sheet that impact cash. Also, we believe free cash flow is a useful measure to evaluate our business since purchases of fixed assets are a necessary component of ongoing operations and free cash flow measures the amount of cash we have available for mandatory debt service and financing obligations, changes in our capital structure, and future investments, after we have paid our operating expenses. Therefore, we believe it is important to view free cash flow as a complement to our entire consolidated statements of cash flows.

This press release and the July 24, 2014 conference call and webcast to discuss our financial results may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements include all statements other than statements of historical fact. These forward-looking statements are inherently difficult to predict. Actual results could differ materially for a variety of reasons, including the amount and timing of our capital expenditures, the mix of products we sell, the results of legal proceedings and claims and the amounts we spend relating to them, the extent to which we owe income taxes, competition, fluctuations in operating results, any difficulties we may encounter as a result of accepting Bitcoin as payment, any inability to raise capital if needed on acceptable terms, our efforts to expand both domestically and internationally, risks of inventory management and seasonality. Other risks and uncertainties include, among others, risks related to new products and services we may offer, and difficulties with our infrastructure, our fulfillment partners or our payment processors, including cyber-attacks or data breaches affecting us or any of them. More information about factors that could potentially affect our financial results is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2014 and our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2014. These and our other subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission identify important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those contained in our projections, estimates and other forward-looking statements.
